Sandra's Story

Text size

Orono - Sandra Noyes Warner, 81, passed away peacefully at home Feb. 19, 2017, in the loving presence of her daughters, after enduring a prolonged illness. She was born April 29, 1935, in Orono, daughter of Kenneth Bradford Noyes and Pauline Currie Noyes.
Sandra received her early education in the Orono School System and remained a lifelong resident of Orono. Sandra graduated from the University of Maine in 1957 with a BA in Education, where she was member of the sorority Alpha Omicron Pi. Her career spanned more than thirty five joyous years of teaching Kindergarten in both Bangor and Orono, touching the lives of thousands of children. Sandra's motherly nature kept students at ease, many returning year after year for a Mrs. Warner hug! Sandra will be remembered for her chocolate cabinet, crazy sweaters and soft spot for animals. Sandra was a Charter Member of the Church of Universal Fellowship and served as a Deacon and Trustee. She enjoyed time as a Maine Troop Greeter and was a member of Delta Kappa Gamma. Sandra was known for her cooking skills, especially her fondness for Toll House cookies and perpetually full cookie jar. Sandra was happiest when surrounded by family, and cherished hosting large summer gatherings where nightly frappes were a tradition. Her most rewarding legacy is her grandchildren and time spent helping raise them. Sandra's exuberant spirit will be greatly missed, but never forgotten.
Sandra was predeceased by her parents; older brother, Albert Noyes of Maryland; and husband of 36 years, Kendall Warner of Orono. She is survived by her brother, Ronald C. Noyes and wife, Gladys, of Orono; sister, Phyllis (Noyes) Scantlebury of Florida; sister-in-law, Doris Noyes of Maryland; daughters, Kendra (Warner) Raymond and husband, Brian, of Hermon and Leanne Warner Parks of Orono; six grandchildren, Kent Andrew, Neily Kate, Nolan Patrick, Kristany Jordan Raymond, Landen Eiley and Brock Kendall Parks; many special nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews. Sandra's family is grateful for the compassionate guidance provided by New Hope Hospice, and a special team of caregivers.
Friends and family are invited to reminisce 6-8 p.m., Saturday, March 4, at The Church of Universal Fellowship, Orono, where a memorial celebration will be held 2 p.m. Sunday, March 5, with the Rev. Darren Morgan officiating. A Toll House cookie reception will be held after the service. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Asa C. Adams School, Attn.: The Sandra Noyes Warner Memorial Fund, 6 Goodridge Dr., Orono, ME 04473.
